Biesbosch

The Hollandse Biesbosch and the Brabantse Biesbosch together form De Biesbosch National Park, a dynamic river delta of around 9,000 hectares where low and high tide still plays a role. The largest freshwater tidal area in Europe is home to a maze of small rivers, creeks, swamp forests, islets, reed beds and grasslands. The development of open polders and willow forests and the construction of high dikes and the delta works have made the area more accessible. From the bike paths you have a beautiful view of the wet and rugged nature with many water birds.
